Two week Notice??

  1. 0
    Who do I send it too?

    I work in Home care and have had very limited contact with my home office over the past year. The only constant contact I have is email with the scheduler? I don't have any idea who would be the proper person to mail my two week notice too.

    Also, would this be a hard copy letter or are such things emailed in todays world?

    Thanks for your information

    Generally people want hard copies of these things, so e-mail is more than sufficient. If I were you, I would contact the scheduler via e-mail or phone (if you have the number), and let her know the situation. I would think she would know where you need to send it, as she does work within the confines of the office ;-)

    If you send it by email, be sure you have the ability to get a return receipt, and keep it. Don't want to find yourself in hot water because "We never got that!" I"m a big fan of hard copies for important things. It can be hand-delivered when you go in for your last check, or just because you're in the neighborhood. Or for a coupla bucks you can save yourself the trip and send it with return card (green) at the post office, and the receipt will come back to you signed by whoever got it. I recommend that.

    Thanks for the return receipt email; don't think I have that ability. Maybe I'll email then send it by return receipt USPS. I doubt I'll go in the office again. It's no where near my house or any of my home care jobs.

    kcdunlap:

    I would type it out, and print out at least 4 copies, give one to HR and one to your direct supervisor. If you don't want to use this place as a reference or ever be contacted when you are applying for future jobs, then I would send an email and be done with it, but considering the economy... I suggest doing it pain in the buttocks way and driving up to the main office, you don't want to give the home health agency/company any reason to make future job searches any more difficult then they have to be.

    1) Who is your direct supervisor? 1 letter goes to him/her
    2) Who is the person who hired you? 1 letter goes to him/her
    3) The owner of the company/agency? 1 letter goes to him/her
    4) Get your own copy of the letter of resignation signed my your direct supervisor and keep it for your records.


    The reason I'm giving the over the top advice is because I went through this recently and I haven't received my last paycheck from the company and they haven't sent my w2, and the DPCS emailed me almost until 2 months after i quit stating that I owed them paperwork and threatened to report me to the BRN...

    Best of luck in your future endeavors...

    P.s.: Healthcare is a small world, you never know who knows who and it's best to maintain relationship as well as you can.

    You don't know who your supervisor/manager is? How is that possible? I have always given my 2 weeks notice in person.

    I work in home care. I met one of my case supervisors once in the entire year I have worked for the company. It's a very relaxed family run business. The only person I have had contact with is my scheduler.

    I have never had any type of review the entire year I have worked here. I've been to the office probably 3 times in my one year of employment (I did a vent/trach training (2 hrs), Yearly review of skills in a group setting (2 hrs), had to interview a BSN person for my BSN class.) It's been a very weird relationship; but it was the only job I could find a year ago.

    I asked the only other nurse I know from the company (went to school with her) who she would send a 2-week notice to; she suggested the owner. So, I'm going to send my letter to her.
